Found a few ideas -

 

man-cave-bar

 

Wheels is easy, wheels that will look good on a bar not so easy. I would have a good side where the castors are hidden mostly by a kickplate and have the locking castors on the private side, a fully stocked bar might be too much to move anyway.

I forget where I read it, but saw recently that someone had converted an Ultimate Storage tool trolley into a bar. They had stained the top and customised some of the shelves and drawers.

 

Can't seem to find it now but the trolleys are here - http://www.ultimatestorage.com.au/tool-trolley-2017

Re: Bar set-up

To just sit or stand at I would go with an H shaped base and put a top on it.

 

Man cave bar

Could be made from almost anything. Standing I would include a foot rail.

I'll also attach the build video below. 

 

Hope it gives you some inspiration for your project.
